Whatever the season, whatever the weather Kyoto Gardens at Holland Park in Kensington is the most beautiful garden in London to be in

This is a landscaped Japanese garden with water features in West London. Very nice to come here and walk around but it is fairly small in size and can get crowd3d, especially in summertime.
